About

To accept individuals with neurological "disorders" as people with a unique set of characteristics that do not prevent them from living fulfilling lives.

Many people view Autistic Spectrum Disorders as an epidemic in dire need of treatment, evidenced by the presence of such organisations as "Cure Autism Now". As Neurodiversity advocates, we feel that this is not the case: we accept that no two people have the same neurological configuration and believe that Autistic Spectrum Disorders are simply valid neurological variations and assert the rights of Autistic People. Today 1 in 150 individuals is diagnosed with autism. We need to work to ensure that these people are treated like equals and are granted the same rights as neurotypicals.

In fact, we advocate not only for people on the autistic spectrum, but anyone with a neurodivergence that presents a social challenge, e.g. all Autistic Spectrum Labels, Fragile X Syndrome, Cognitive Impairments (arithmetic, reading, writing, spelling, et cetera.), Angelman Syndrome, Dyspraxia, Down Syndrome, Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and Schizophrenia.

1. We believe that neurodivergent individuals should have the same rights as neurotypicals.

2. Every autistic individual has the right to an educaation that fits their neurological configuration.

3. All individuals have the right to advocate for themselves without fear of harassment or embarrassment.
